Neon Aileron is a retro style shooter where enemies spawn to the beat on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to the creativity and unique development of Saturday Development. Coming to Steam in early 2020.

Neon Aileron brings back the retro style shooter. Since oncoming enemies spawn to the beat of the music. Which takes the a-typical ideal of retro shooters and adds in a true vibe.

Neon Aileron is created to evoke memories of playing older shooters. Those that also pre-date the whole bullet-hell genre. So you might want to call this bullet lite. Since the focus is on shooting enemies. Rather than just dodging complex bullet patterns. Saturday Development designed this game for fans. Those who played U.N. Squadron, Gradius, and Thunder Force.
